Description

[A] must-read thriller . . . My Husband’s Wife has an ending that will change the way you view marriage forever.” —Bustle

“If you loved Gone Girl and The Talented Mr. Ripley, you’ll love My Husband’s Wife. It’s got every thriller’s trifecta: love, marriage, and murder.” —Parade

“The novel’s plot is as provocative as its title.” —The Washington Post

 
From the bestselling author of The Dead Ex, a deliciously addictive psychological thriller about the powerful effects of little white lies on three intertwined lives--and when those secrets become deadly 

When young lawyer Lily marries Ed, she’s determined to make a fresh start and leave the secrets of the past behind. But then she takes on her first murder case and meets Joe, a convicted murderer to whom Lily is strangely drawn—and for whom she will soon be willing to risk almost anything.

But Lily is not the only one with secrets. Her next-door neighbor Carla may be only nine, but she has already learned that secrets are powerful things. That they can get her whatever she wants.

When Lily finds Carla on her doorstep twelve years later, a chain of events is set in motion that can end only one way.

    I liked the way the story weaved in and out, with the exception of the epilogue, it was a little drawn out, maybe parts could have been worked into the story. It was easy to read in one day.
  • A must read

    I haven’t read a book so quickly since high school. You think you know what’s going to happen but then something different happens that completely blows you away. The way the story flips between two characters adds extra suspense. Definitely recommend reading this book.

    I’m a thriller enthusiast & this one was a 5/10 in my opinion. No real twists or surprising turns, but a page turner none the less

    I didn’t really care for this book :( It seemed like there was a lot crammed in the end of the book. And just too much tragedy. It didn’t leave you feeling good in the end. Unsettling
  • Not quite as good as it sounds

    The premise of the book is good but the storyline falls a little flat. It’s pretty easy to “guess what’s going to happen next.” The characters are fairly one dimensional and hard to relate to personally. Also, the author’s writing style is a bit unconventional in that she tends to jump around timelines and the flow is off at some points. It was a nice try, but it doesn’t quite hit the mark.
